Christians do not live according to the secular calendar but according to the liturgical calendar of the Church. This calendar marks seasons according to the life of the Son of God, Jesus Christ, and the lives of his Saints. In this book, Charles Alexander helps explain these seasons and provides readers short biographies of saints celebrated in the Anglican tradition, many of which are beautifully illustrated by Patricia Lambe. Through the pictures and descriptions, readers of all ages will learn how to turn their attention from the mundane to the eternal reality of God by living out the liturgical calendar.
